Ivica Zubac gets a majority of his points diving to the rim on pick and rolls and finishing in transition.

Zubac isn’t a remarkable prospect but he does a lot of the little things well, so he will be able to contribute for a team. If he stays healthy he can be a solid career role player.

29. San Antonio Spurs : Thon Maker (PF/C-HS Senior)

The notorious Thon Maker. He manipulated the system all so he could barely be drafted in the first round. If he had played one season at Kansas or Kentucky, he could be much higher on this list.


Maker is a giant question mark. If anyone can solve him it’s the Spurs. Gregg Popovich coaching this kid would be fun to watch.

30. Golden State Warriors :  Malachi Richardson (SG/SF-Syracuse)

Malachi Richardson is the latest player to parlay a great performance in the NCAA Tournament into becoming a first round pick.


After an equally impressive performance at the combine, Richardson has been rumored as a possible lottery selection. If he does fall then Richardson is a good fit in Golden State.

His shot definitely needs work, but he has the physical tools to be an elite defender.
